Some recalled pet food still on shelves

WASHINGTON, April 12 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has warned pet owners that recalled pet food might still be on the shelves of some retail establishments.

The FDA said it is urging U.S. retailers to be vigilant in removing all products associated with the pet food recall, which began March 16.

In an effort to verify the effectiveness of the recall, FDA officials conducted approximately 400 checks of retail stores and discovered some companies have not removed all of the recalled products.

"FDA's priority is to make sure that cats and dogs have safe food to eat," said Dr. Stephen Sundlof, director of the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine. "Many of us are pet owners and animal lovers and we want pet owners to feel assured that we are doing everything we can to make sure that all contaminated food is off the shelves."

A list of all the recalled pet food products is available at menufoods.com.
